Pre-Blast – BO Run @ KDF Marathon/Half Marathon

Some leaders lead from the front. You know if you are one of these PAX. You knock out your reps and then encourage others to follow suite. You are that cheerleader across from across the lot, pushing your fellow PAX to get better. Trying to lead a group of runners from the front is aContinue reading “Pre-Blast – BO Run @ KDF Marathon/Half Marathon”

3.11.2022 – Baptizer @ The Garden – Captain Crunchberry Q

The weather this morning was hovering around freezing. There wasn’t any frost on my window to deal with, but I passed multiple cars along the way to suggest I should have. Nine PAX total got put into the starting line up. O’Neil, Jolly Rancher, Diane Dukes, Jewel, Jimmy Neutron, Harry Caray, Brown Water, Bob Ross,Continue reading “3.11.2022 – Baptizer @ The Garden – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – Solo @ North Posh – Captain Crunchberry Q – 2.21.2022

I was a little surprised when I pulled up. There were like a bazillion cars in the lot. I forgot some runners were meeting there. When 0530 hit, and the runners departed, all that remained was Edward Scissorhand, Viking, Diane Dukes, Mr. Roper, Harry Caray, and myself. We started with some standard COP. Side StraddleContinue reading “Backblast – Solo @ North Posh – Captain Crunchberry Q – 2.21.2022”

Backblast – Loco @ The County – Captain Crunchberry Q – 2.15.2022

On Saturday, Hush Puppy said The Loco needed a Q. I told him if someone didn’t step up, I would take it. Not because I needed another Q for IHC, but I started training for the Derby Half Marathon on Monday. When I trained last summer/fall for the Louisville Half Marathon, I struggled to postContinue reading “Backblast – Loco @ The County – Captain Crunchberry Q – 2.15.2022”

Backblast – Agony @ The County – 2.10.2022 – Captain Crunchberry Q

Weather this morning was chilly, but dry. Well, except for where there was melting snow and ice. CSX put the temporary road block up, which made for a little bit longer commute than expected. I’m pretty sure Valdez was concerned he was working out alone this morning. But eventually WILDflower, Brown Water, DeVitto, Gisele, Oscar,Continue reading “Backblast – Agony @ The County – 2.10.2022 – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – Loco @ The County – 1.25.2022

Plain and simple, this morning was windy. It wasn’t really too windy, but it seemed to blow from every direction. All four of us met up at the flag, disclaimer was given, and then off we went to the front lot to try to hide from the wind. At the front lot, we found thatContinue reading “Backblast – Loco @ The County – 1.25.2022”

Backblast – 1.17.2022 – Motivator @ The Abyss – Captain Crunchberry Q

This morning was windy, cold, and a little icy. It was glorious. It was the things legendary workouts are made of. I arrived first, and started sweating immediately. See, I never said I got there real early. Where was everyone? Will this be my first solo Q? Moments later Jolly Rancher and Glowsticks pulled in,Continue reading “Backblast – 1.17.2022 – Motivator @ The Abyss – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – Captain Crunchberry Q

On a chilly Friday at The Abyss, 5 PAX built a pyramid. I arrive a few minutes early to lay out the stations. At 0530 I was ready to go, but Flip Flop and Uncle Sam wasn’t there yet. We didn’t wait for them. Kitty Litter advised that Flip Flop is 50/50 on Fridays, notContinue reading “Backblast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – Captain Crunchberry Q”

BackBlast – Motivator at The Abyss – 12.20.2021 – Captain Crunchberry Q

It was great to be back out to The Abyss. The last time I was there for a regularly scheduled workout was May. But the 0500 start time makes it hard. Props to Flip Flop for the direct encouragement to put it on my calendar. The I.O.U’s for coffee and donuts were handed out inContinue reading “BackBlast – Motivator at The Abyss – 12.20.2021 – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – The Chopper @ Vets – Captain Crunchberry Q – 12.03.2021

This morning was great. I really don’t travel too often. I told the PAX at Vets that I generally only go to Vets when I need a good laugh. (Really it is generally to support a traveling Q, but those guys that call The Vet home never disappoint on the mummblechatter.) After Bunghole finished identifyingContinue reading “Backblast – The Chopper @ Vets – Captain Crunchberry Q – 12.03.2021”

Preblast – The Chopper @ Vets – Captain Crunchberry Q – 12.03.2021

My first Q at Vets. I’m not sure the PAX that call Vets home read (or write) blasts, as this is only the second preblast or backblast I can find for the month of November. This guy right here will bey inspiration for my weinke. Of those 86,400 seconds, I hope you will choose toContinue reading “Preblast – The Chopper @ Vets – Captain Crunchberry Q – 12.03.2021”

Backblast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 11.26.2021 – Captain Crunchberry Q

Doodle Part Duex – The challenge continues. This was a redo to my Q at Pleasantville I did last year. I had the inspiration to attempt a GPS Doodle. I informed Airplane it would be a run heavy workout. (He strongly debated fartsacking I think.) Sometimes you know ahead of time how many to expectContinue reading “Backblast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 11.26.2021 – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – Moonshiner @ Boondocks – Captain Crunchberry Q – 11.11.2021

COP: Toy Soldiers, Kendra Newmans, Michael Phelps, and a runners stretch. One and only THANG: A ladder. We moseyed with coupons to the first crosswalk. The ladderContinue reading “Backblast – Moonshiner @ Boondocks – Captain Crunchberry Q – 11.11.2021”

Backblast – 10K / Half / Full Marathon

What started as a way to reengage a PAX that hadn’t made it out in a while, turned into a whole lot of running. The weather was anywhere from 85-90 degrees to as low as 30. We trained from the middle of July until the run on November 7. A few of us did “conditioning”Continue reading “Backblast – 10K / Half / Full Marathon”

Backblast – 10.15.2021 – Defender @ The Patriot – Captain Crunchberry Q

The weather was awesome. A typical late summer, almost fall morning with some scattered cloud cover and little to no fog. Joining me this morning were Boss Hog, Air Raid, Shade Tree, Minnow, Focker, and Yankovic. I have been training for a half marathon, and posting to “normal” workouts has been a bit of aContinue reading “Backblast – 10.15.2021 – Defender @ The Patriot – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Pre-Blast – The Patriot – 10.15.2021 – Captain Crunchberry Q

Tomorrow at The the Patriot, you ABSolutely won’t want to be ABsent for this Q. I promise there will be an ABundance of work. My CORE workouts lately have been running, so running will be short distances only. Bring a coupon in case I run out of ABSurd exercise, and need to change it up.

BackBlast – The Moonshiner @ Boondocks – Captain Crunchberry Q – 9.16.2021

I billed this workout as something that your upper body would be sore. With that, I will provide you with this free ticket to the gun show. I arrived this morning with a crispness in the air. Fall is right around the corner, and it feels fabulous. There to enjoy the morning with me was:Continue reading “BackBlast – The Moonshiner @ Boondocks – Captain Crunchberry Q – 9.16.2021”
